Finally got the head off.
Here is what was stuck(welded) to the top of the piston. No marks on the walls of the piston.
I am just wondering where the rest of the bolt went?
Will take the head to a machine shop to make sure everything is up to snuff. Also to have them drill the hole for the new ignition on the back of the head.

I think this bike is going to be a winner.

I wouldn't be so sure. A bolt that big could easily have crushed the rod bearing (or even bent the rod). I wouldn't get too giddy just yet...

To check to see if the con rod is bent, turn the engine over and see where the pistons are when fully extended. The pistons should come close to the head mating surface. Check to see that all are the same. Saw this on another forum.

Cheers

Well the two valves are cracked one with bent rod.
Thank goodness I have a spare engine lying on the garage floor for parts.

Not sure about the nomenclature, but it sounds like you've confirmed damaged valves. The term "rod" should not be associated with your valves. Do you mean a bent valve "stem" or have you also confirmed a bent connecting rod - which would be bad news, necessitating a complete engine teardown and overhaul. You'd need more than a spare engine to do that.

So, if you're lucky, it's just the valves, but given the photo you've shown, I would still be pretty nervous. Any sign of scoring on the cylinder walls where that bolt was? What does the piston crown look like? Will the motor turn over easily now with the head(s) off? If not, you ain't out of the woods yet.

1 Bent valve stem and 2 cracked valves.
I am going to take another head off the spare engine. Use those pistons with the current cam shaft. I have a hole drilled already for the new ignition.
Yes the engine turns real nice now.

Found the rear flat tire caused by an old valve stem rotted

It is really nice to have a lift table and can not get the bike up on it. I guess I will have to have a beer party and get a bunch to push the bike up.

Dang. Now I'm confused again. You're going to pull the heads off the spare and use them...but the pistons?

I have taken parts from multiple motors before and ran them with no issues.

Edit. I hate typing on android virtual keypad.

The pistons and walls seem to be ok. No scratches any where that we can see.

Found the top of the screw-- The sound of the ball bouncing around was found on the floor. It must have dropped out when removing the heads.

Should have said the rockers.
I have never been in an engine before. So I am learning the correct names for these things that are in there.

Thank You

Agreed. A for effort. Especially if this is the first go round.
